Directed by Juraj Herz

Czechoslovakia, 1969, 1h 35min, DCP, In Czech with English Subtitles.


There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

1930s Prague is beset from the outside by the rise of fascism, and from the inside by a deranged cremator who believes himself the Dalai Lama. Banned shortly after its release, Juraj Herz’s hallucinogenic horror is newly restored and more relevant than ever.
